The 'Trends in Higher Education' infographic takes a look at how fields of studies have changed over the past decade from a general and gender-based perspective. As the market has become increasingly competitive the need for further education in certain fields has increased greatly. As a result, a general rise in higher education has occurred across a spectrum of degrees.
In the field of Bachelor's Degrees, great leaps are shown in the field of business and social sciences, whereas the others experience a degree of rise but are fairly consistent from 1998-2008. One of the biggest shifts to note is the domination of women in the fields of health, education and psychology in comparison to their male counterparts.
